Liam Hemsworth has been keeping a low profile since news broke of his divorce from Miley Cyrus, and her subsequent relationship with Kaitlynn Carter.

The Hollywood actor definitely needed some time to himself, and flew back to his native Australia to spend quality time with his brother, Chris Hemsworth.

Sometimes we just need some sibling love, and Chris has brought a smile to Liam's face amid his heartbreaking break-up from his partner of 10 years Miley.

The brothers set off on a family holiday to Makepeace Island, just off Noosa in Queensland, Australia, to have some down-time and the pair looked more chilled out than ever.

Chris shared some photos of his time away with Liam and his wife Elsa Pataky on Thursday; "Another little hidden gem in Australia Thanks for the hospitality Makepeace Island!,’ Chris said.

The snapshots show Chris posed alongside Liam and his gang of seven.  Chris jokingly puts his foot on Liam’s head in one moment, so we reckon they're just like every other brotherly pair.

The Thor star has had a turbulent week, with family dog Sunny going missing earlier last week and getting zapped by electric fencing.

The Marvel star's Goldendoodle ran off in Byron Bay, and the actor's family friend Tracey Sparkes shared an appeal on Facebook explaining that Sunny was a ‘very friendly’ pooch who was ‘approaching her third night lost’, Page Six reported.

"She ran off after getting a zap from electric fencing," she wrote, before asking members of a local Byron Bay Facebook group to "please keep a look out for her".

Chris and his wife, who adopted Sunny in November 2014, were reunited with the dog later on, luckily.

Liam definitely needed a holiday after splitting from Miley Cyrus just eight months after their marriage in December of last year.

The Slide Away singer is already dating new girlfriend Kaitlynn Carter just days after confirming the end of her marriage.

Miley was seen kissing Kaitlynn on their trip to Italy and it’s now reported the pair are living together. People claim that the pair have taken the next step, and Miley has "no regrets" about her break-up.

According to The Blast, settlement discussions between the Miley and Liam have been ‘amicable’ since Liam filed for divorce and their pre-nup means dividing their assets is simple.

Make of this information what you will, but according to new research, if you have a brother, you’re less likely to earn a high income.

Yep, according to researchers at Cornell University, your male siblings could be to blame for your low pay packet.

Researchers Angela Cools and Eleonora Patacchini found that women who had a brother or brothers had a 10 percent lower income than the average woman in her late 20s or early 30s.

However, if a woman had no brothers, the overall gender pay gap would likely be five percent smaller.

The researchers say: 'Siblings may affect each other indirectly, by changing parents’ investments or expectations for a particular child.'

'Siblings may also affect each other directly through their interactions with each other.'

Researchers believe this pay gap difference can be attributed to the fact that women with brothers tend to be more family-oriented and prioritise being in a committed relationship than those who have only sisters or no siblings.

Apparently, those who have brothers also tend to express more interest in having a family, also.

'We find that women with brothers have more traditional gender roles and family responsibilities,' an excerpt from the study explained.

Now we're not so sure if having male siblings influences our likelihood of having 'traditional values,' but the researchers examined a number of other factors.

These included differences in parental investment, cognitive abilities, parental expectations, or personality traits – but found no evidence that any of these contributed to the wage gap.

Despite the efforts to narrow the gender pay gap, researchers say women continue to earn less than men on both an annual and weekly basis.

Researchers say these findings could be crucial in narrowing the pay gap between men and women.

'By examining the role of sibling gender composition on women’s wages, we show that exogenous changes in family environments can lead women to adopt less sex-typed attitudes and behaviours, potentially reducing earnings gaps between men and women later in life,' the study reads.

We’re a bit disheartened to learn our beloved brothers might be the reason why we aren’t making the big bucks!

Oh brothers! You can’t live with them, you can’t live without them. They can be your greatest support system, your inspiration and your rock. As well as being total brats, smelly eejits and incredibly insensitive. But still, there are so many things every girl can learn from her brother. Like these!

1. That All Men Are A Child At Heart


It doesn’t matter what decade of their life they’re in: they will still play video games, call you stupid and laugh at their own farts.

2. The Extent Of A Mammy’s Love

Mammys Boy

In every Irish family it’s known that the daughter becomes more of a friend towards her Mother. You go with her to Aldi, help her with the laundry and gossip with her about the latest scandal. But for her little prince, she’ll use up all the food in the house to keep him fed and iron his pillowcases.

3. How To Give Powerful Dead Legs

Chinese Burns

We’ve all been beaten up by our brothers. Whether it’s kicking, punching, wet willies, wedgies, dead legs or Chinese burns (is there a more PC term for that these days?!), it has happened to you. But what this teaches you is how to withstand pain. And get your own back…

4. How To Stay Grounded


You’ve found out that you’ve exceeded your own expectations in your summer exams, you got a great job and life is pretty sweet. Brothers have their own special way of telling you: “I’m proud of you, but don’t get ahead of yourself.”

5. How To Eat Like An Absolute Pig


If you have brothers, you know you need to get to the fridge first on a weekend, otherwise you'll starve. It's like they inhale everything…

6. The Honest Male Point of View

Males Perspective

Brothers aren’t afraid to tell you you’re acting batsh*t crazy. They’ll always offer you honest dating advice, give you a good insight into the male mind. 

7. When To Stop Whining

stop whining

No matter how hard your life seems your brother will have no hesitation in telling you to shut up. In all fairness, they usually only say this when your hair straightener breaks or you’ve run out of tan mid legs and are in floods of tears over these disasters. 

8. What’s “Hip”?


Fact: You will never as cool as your younger brother. It seems that no matter what band you listen to or which social media website you engage with, they will always be one step ahead of you. When you do manage to impress them with your “hipness” they will pat you on back, leaving you a bit bewildered.

9. That It’s Not Just You Who Feels Their Family Is Insane

family crazy

They’ve attended every family event with you, have sat through numerous families dinners and have gone through all the rows with you. It’s good to know that you’re not the only one who thinks that aunt Emma is an absolute nut or uncle Karl is a sensational bore.

10. How To Deal With “Sharing” Your Food

stealing food

You’re lucky if your brother asks you “Are you going to finish that?” You’ll be sitting there, happily munching away on your dinner, merry with life until you look down to discover your plate has been conveniently moved over to where your brother is sitting.

11. That Boys Will Always Be Boys

boys will be boys

Even though there may be busts up, food stolen and you get teased day in-day out, we still love our brothers more than anything. After all, if you can’t beat them, join them.
